Reviews for Slow-Roasted Lemon Dill Chicken
Sort By :
I agree the name is a bit misleading - this was not really a roast chicken. It was juicy and delicious just the same, though. I found it really easy to put together.
Although the chicken came out very moist and flavorful, it didn't look anything like the picture, and it certainly isn't "roasted". There was also too much paprika, I think. I made it for Sunday dinner today since using a crock pot doesn't heat up the kitchen on a hot day. I like my chicken crispy, so I probably won't be making this again.
I really enjoyed this recipe. It's hard to flavor chicken, but this was a tasty slow roasted chicken dish. I did add a whole cup of chicken stock, 2 tsp. lemon peel, and some fresh basil for additional spice.
Very easy to prepare and I liked how flavorful the meat was.
Would definitely make this again. Nice flavor and easy to make. My family really enjoyed it - not much was left on the plate.
